We know that we are not perfect. We all commit sins whether intentionally or unintentionally, but why do we criticize others for their mistakes. Why do we constantly judge people for the wrong things they did when we ourselves also committed mistakes too. Judging a person based on their past or the wrong thing they did is also considered a sin. Instead of judging a person, why not learn to understand and help one another just like Jesus did. We all know that Jesus never judges a person based on their past or for who they are, Jesus only helps people. We should all be like Jesus. Instead of wasting your time judging a person’s sin we should love, understand and help them be saved by God.
1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:1-5
“Sinner and Saints”

The album contained his Grammy Award-Winning song “Choices.”
The Meaning of the Song
The song “Sinners and Saints” is a reminder that we should not judge a person just because they have done something wrong. We all commit sins, and no one is blameless. Therefore, don’t point fingers or hate someone. Let Jesus do the final judging because, at the end of our life, we will all be judged. Let us use our time to help save people.
“If you judge someone else, you have no excuse for it. When you judge another person, you are judging yourself. You do the same things you blame others for doing. 2 We know that when God judges those who do evil things, he judges fairly. 3 Though you are only a human being, you judge others. But you yourself do the same things. So how do you think you will escape when God judges you? 4 Do you disrespect God’s great kindness and favor? Do you disrespect God when he is patient with you? Don’t you realize that God’s kindness is meant to turn you away from your sins?” Romans 2: 1-4
